Mini Bag, Maxi Style: The Cutest Mini Bags of 2016

We decode the mini bag trend and introduce you to our favourite baby bags, the cutest way to invite fun in your wardrobe for Spring/Summer 2016.

The mini bag made its debut on the runways and on street-style stars fairly recently.

The trend is like no other due to its inherent cuteness and quirkiness. You may have picked up we were fans of tiny and cutesy items in our post on head turning accessories for Spring 2016.

These baby bags  actually are a great way to buy a designer bag at only a fraction of the price.

The mini bag will also allow you to declutter your life as it will push you to reduce the amount of stuff you carry down to essentials, for the better.

Here we round up our favourite candy coloured mini-bags of the season, from high street to high end.
